of a weekend in many areas of the deep south. texas on saturday. as we went through saturday afternoon, all day sunday, the storm hit mississippi. all of this green on the map is areas of rain. a lot of it out of alabama, heading for northern georgia. tennessee is drenched all through the state. the other thing we have to deal with, we had isolated severe weather over the weekend. a few weaker tornadoes, numerous areas with flooding. once again today, the possibility of severe storms in this region. we could also see heavy rainfall, too. areas from memphis to nashville will have the highest totals. about two inches of rain. about an inch across alabama and areas of georgia. as far as the severe weather goes, if we get isolated tornadoes, most likely they would be coming through the panhandle of florida and through central alabama. we'll watch that closely this morning. some of those storms could be heading for atlanta today. if you're flying today through the atlanta airport, your best chance of significant delays. as far as the other areas of concern, big storm in southern portions of quebeque

and mentality and intimidating my neighbors. i loved in cities in the south including texas and louisiana but i have never seen a good old boy system than right here. through the years i have watched many of my local neighbors including medical doctors throw up their hands and surrender to this harassment and oppression. but i believe we need to stand up to bullies, not just the children in recent documentaries but all bullies and the foundation shrewd billionaires and the well paid lobbyists and business friends and associates who stand to reap millions of dollars from their agenday bullies ask that we turn a blind eye and ignore their corrupting influence. i had some of you sitting here would stand up for citizens who are simply willing to present a balanced perspective. maybe you can't be bothered to think about my personal safety or my family or even my neighbors but i thought at least you would have wanted to find out about the men who attacked me for the soccer parents who all of you have been well informed to continue unwlittantly untrust their children to these violent criminals. t

heat down in south texas. brownsville 97 degrees. but this storm system spinning over minnesota and iowa, it's going to be responsible for throwing some rain our way. basically tonight in the form of showers and storms. this first batch of rain you see probably going to die out before it gets anywhere close to us. maybe throw a few clouds our way. ahead of that storm system, though, the winds are out of the south. that's bringing in some moisture and warmth. also the whole setup is ripe for some strong, maybe severe thunderstorms. the storm prediction center believes we have a threat for damaging wind gusts mainly tonight is what i'm thinking. late tonight, could be out west in western virginia, southwestern virginia. our concerns are going to be i think after dark because it looks like at least through the daylight hours, any showers will be south of us and west of us here at 6:00. then here comes the action as we get into the overnight period. but most of this will be gone by early on friday. so timing it will be a nighttime event. with that we've got a yellow alert for the st

is mitt romney could be getting really big margins in the south from texas across the south. which would roll up his popular vote. while the president wins some big states by narrower margins, and thus mitt romney wins the popular vote, barack obama wins the electoral vote and the presidency, like we had in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work
